Trump tweets ‘I won the election’ shortly after his campaign drops key claim that 700,000 mail-in ballots were illegally processed without GOP poll watchers present in Pennsylvania

President Donald Trump’s campaign has withdrawn a central part of its lawsuit seeking to stop the certification of the election results in Pennsylvania, shrinking the case to a small number of ballots.

Ahead of a Tuesday hearing in the case, Trump’s campaign dropped its allegation that 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots were illegally processed without its representatives watching.

The campaign’s slimmed-down lawsuit, filed in federal court on Sunday, maintains the aim of blocking Pennsylvania from certifying a victory for Biden in the state and its claim that Democratic voters were treated more favorably than Republican voters.

Multiple major news outlets including the Associated Press, CNN and Fox News called the presidential contest for former Vice President Joe Biden on November 7, after determining that the remaining ballots left to be counted in Pennsylvania would not allow Trump to catch up.

Trump has refused to concede and insisted that Democrats stole the election from him as his campaign mounts tenuous legal battles in several key states that he lost.

The president pushed his message yet again on Sunday night, tweeting: ‘I WON THE ELECTION!’
